    I have never restored my iPhone 5 since I got it last February. I did hard reset it after iOS 7 and probably will after iOS 8 as well.

    Just updated my 5S with no issues. It seemed to me to be the fastest I ever updated. It really zipped along thankfully. Maybe apple tweaked something.

    I think I'm a crazy techie. I am used to the days of flashing ROMs on my droids. I'm used to never restoring, instead only moving select stuff back on and re-downloading my apps. It was to avoid old data conflictions and soft bricking.

    So the habit follows. Plus it's fun setting it up different and not bogging it down with stuff I consider useless.

    I'm weird aren't I?

    From what I've gathered, the Mac version of Pangu works on 7.1.2, but Windows does not.

    No that is never true I used the windows version to jailbreak my iOS 7.1.2 that I'm enjoying now

    Is there a benefit to hard reset after update?

    Thanks in advance

    7.1.2 has been solid since updating OTA. No restrings, crashes or anything. Normally, I would have restored as new by now, but since I'll be installing iOS 8 beta 3 when it drops, I'll just wait until then to do so.
    I haven't restored my 5S since iOS 7.1 came out I've only done OTA updates cause I haven't had any problems so far. I will restore a new once the iOS 8 GM comes out though.

    My thinking was that hard reset would clear left over "junk" from the previous OS.

    I also run my battery down after a major update to re calibrate the meter.

    Not sure if any of these are necessary or even helpful but since I never have problems after an update, I will probably keep doing it.

    Just didnt work. Back on iOS 8 b2, and life is good again.
    I'm glad some people are having good experiences with iOS 8 beta. 1 and 2 didn't like my phone! Or my phone didn't like it. Lol I'll see what happens with beta 3.

    My iPad Air was upgraded in the store as I was buying it so I have no idea what it would have been like without it, I'm in the process of updating my iPod Touch right now, so far so good, nothing is getting stuck.

    EDIT: Perfect. No problems, no issues, no hiccups. *is happy*

    My battery life is definitely worse since upgrading to 7.1.2.

    The install didn't go entirely smoothly. I might just do a full reset, wipe the phone and try again.

    After I upgraded to 7.1.2 I immediately noticed a huge battery drain issue. I'd never had that before on my iphone 5.
    Prior to the upgrade I would surf the net for a min of 2 hrs per day, and still have 65% battery life at the end of the day.
    Now, I'm lucky to have 30%. I've read that Apple is readying an update to fix the battery drain issues because this is
    an issue effecting quite a bit of users. In the mean time I did a restore to a previous backup on my mac and have found
    that the battery life is better, but still not like it was with 7.1.1.

    Welcome to iMore vantaamike

    We are not denying that some are experiencing battery issues with the current OS but most are not. It seems to be hit or miss
